About Chinese Herbology

Herbal medicine has formed the cornerstone of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It is still practiced extensively throughout China in clinics and hospitals and is the choice therapy for internal medicine. Chinese herbal medicine allows for a profound impact on health with minimal side effects.

In our clinic, a detailed analysis of signs and symptoms, including the unique diagnostic methods of the pulse and tongue, help uncover a detailed map of the course and process of disease.

Chinese herbal medicine allows for a profound impact on health with minimal side effects.

After a diagnosis is made, the patient will be given an individualized herbal formula tailored to their unique situation. As the patient’s condition evolves and improves, the formula will be modified to follow the changes.

An immense amount of research has been done in both China and the West validating the efficacy and merit of Chinese herbal medicine. Chinese herbal medicine is able to treat a wide range of acute and chronic diseases.

 I had a very positive experience with Jason at Open Gate Acupuncture. This is the real deal, and do not expect to be given bottles of pills to swallow. The herbs are imported in bulk, and guaranteed for freshness, and free from pesticides. Jason’s knowledge of Chinese medicine was well rounded, and helped me with a very serious health concern. I would recommend his practice to all concerned. – Bob King (Zen Pig), 2014 five-star (google)”
 Jason’s real mastery is in herbal formulas. Jason tuned a formula that helped with my peri-menapausal symptoms: hot-flashes, sleeplessness. Jason’s gentle demeanor, sensitivity, depth of knowledge, and gentle needling lead to a high recommendation. Beth Marvel, 2014 five-star (google)”
